The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) in the Central Region as part of its corporate social responsibility aimed at helping the health delivery system by saving lives, has organized a blood donation exercise to replenish the stock at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital Blood Bank.
The initiative brought together staff of NHIA in the region including members of the public, students of Mfantsipim and University Practice Senior High Schools to donate about 120 pints of blood.
The campaign, which is in its third year, also took place in the nine other regions.
Robert Brandford Mensah, Senior Monitoring and Evaluation Officer of the NHIA speaking to ATL FM News stated that the NHIA instituted July 1 of every year for district offices as well as stakeholders to come together to donate blood to augment blood banks in the region.
He called for regular voluntary blood donation.
